“Dream big and chase your dreams. Take no shortcuts. One day you will achieve it.” I had heard these words more than a thousand times during my school days. Followed those words like a mantra, and dreamt big, in fact bigger. It was easy. The path to purse them was not. So many constraints to move ahead, so many reasons to hold back, I fought with them to march toward my dreams.
The Top 5 dreams:
1. Home Sweet Home – the gift to my parents:
Maybe, I was five or six, when this happened. I asked my Mom what she wanted from me when I grew up. She smiled first, then her eyes became moist, and she said, “Build a home for us.” I made those words my dream and queue it second in my priority list.
2. Range Rover – The car of my dreams:
When I was eighteen, I first saw this car in an English Movie. The hero of the movie was driving it on the roads of Tokyo. I admired it silently. Being a big car lover, I quickly found the brand and model name of the car. Range Rover.
When I went to London, I had a chance to drive it on a highway. I absolutely enjoyed the experience. I wanted to enjoy more, so I made it my dream, and queue it third in my priority list.
3. EURO Trip – the most awaited trip:
It all started when I first saw a song “Poovukkul Olinthu Irukkum” from the movie “Jeans” directed by Ace Director Shankar. The song featured the Seven Wonders of the World. Out of the seven, Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa, made me to dream about France and Italy. After watching the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the wish got intensified, and the thought of EURO Trip excited me a lot. I made it my dream and queue it fourth in my priority list.
4. Moon – A paid visit:
My mom used to feed me singing a Tamil Rhyme “Nila Nila Odi Vaa” at nights. It made me wonder, why it never happened. Why the moon never came to me? It was a difficult question to answer for my mom. In my school days, when I first heard about Neil Armstrong, I wanted to visit the moon badly. But how was the big question. I never wanted to be a scientist, but I wanted to visit the moon. I found a costly solution for it before two years – Space Tourism. I made it my dream and queue it fifth in my priority list.
5. Happiness – Can it be bought?
From day one of my life till date, my mom used to tell me one only thing – “Always Keep Smiling. It is not so easy, but you can be happy, if you plan your life, and live your life as per the plan.”
I followed her words. I set myself realistic goals, and worked hard to pursue them. One of them is having a good insurance plan. IDBI FEDERAL: Lifesurance Whole Life Savings Insurance plan is one of the best plans that provides life cover continues even after the premiums are paid. It keeps everyone in my family happy and allows me to continue to enjoy the life, just the way I had planned!
So, I made my choice to be #BefikarUmarBhar
Always Keep Smiling!
